    Deep in the heart of Raleigh, hidden away behind two large apartment complexes that face James Road, is a 66-acre oasis of lush vegetation, fish-filled ponds, and a portion of the Wolf River.

  11. Pre-Summer Heat in Memphis PoliticsRead the original story w/Photo

    Sep 3, 2015 | The Memphis Flyer

    On Saturday, a day in which the afternoon temperature soared into the 90s, the annual "community picnic" sponsored by longtime political broker and former Shelby County Commissioner Sidney Chism took place, as usual, on the grounds of the Horn Lake Road Learning Center in South Memphis. And, as usual, the event attracted active politicians, candidates for political office, and a politically oriented crowd, though attendance seemed somewhat down this year, whether because of the excessive heat or by the relative scarcity of blue-ribbon political contests to come - at least among Democrats, who are normally predominant at these events.
